Can I no longer choose from different slide transitions in preferences?

    Hi Charles,

    We had to remove them to get into the app store. If you really want it, you can use the version you bought off store.

    We are adding back new transitions in version 2.

    Kind regards,
    Drew

    Drew,

    Thanks for the explanation. I knew something was missing!

    I can hold out for version 2.0 to get slide transitions back.

    But I will say that the transitions are important. The time lag as it "flips" (just as if I were turning a paper flashcard), as well as the change in the visual, indicating that we going to the NEXT card.

    So very many YEARS of using stacks of paper flash cards, and my brain is now trained to absorb the info from them in a certain way.

    I might even suggest a transition where you look at the prompt, and then flip the card up over the top (rather than like turning the page of a book) to see the back. (on a paper card the writing on the back would be upside down from the writing on the front)

    Have a nice day.

    Hi Charley,
    We would have preferred to keep them, but Apple's rules made it difficult in the short term.
    In version 2, slides feel more like physical cards, and the transitions are appropriate for that. Similar to your flip, but not exactly the same.
    Kind regards,
    Drew
